Hello, I'm Lauryn

Wife, wine drinker, cat mother and all things wedding lover.

My husband Ian and I are California born with New Zealand roots.

In 2018 we made the decision to leave our corporate jobs and the hustle and bustle of Auckland, and moved to our happy place in the Coromandel. 


I have always loved love. It took me a while to figure out how to harness my passion into something tangible, but when I began to plan my own wedding, it all fell into place. I launched Ferns & Things and became my first, very satisfied client.

I try to see how my actions will affect our environment and those around me in everything I do. This means supporting other local businesses, being a conscious consumer and learning more about how to be sustainable, every step of the way. I will incorporate these values into planning and coordinating your epic day. 

Your wedding is the best party you will ever throw (unless you hire me to coordinate your wedding anniversaries, they’ll be pumping too). Speaking from experience, you'll want someone you get along with to take charge of your day... and you don’t want to be worrying about your table settings or if your cake has been delivered.


As your planner, I will ensure that the day of your dreams becomes a reality. My goal is to coordinate the event so smoothly, that you feel like a very important guest, rather than a host.

If an environmentally conscious, beautiful and stress-free day is what you're after, let me shout you a drink (choose your poison) and we can start to grow your special day together. 

Lauryn xx
